About the Author
Geonn Cannon was born in a barn and raised to know better than that. He was born and raised in Oklahoma where he’s been enslaved by a series of cats, dogs, two birds and one unexpected turtle. He’s spent his entire life creating stories but only became serious about it when he realized it was a talent that could impress girls. Learning to write well was easier than learning to juggle, so a career was underway. His high school years were spent writing stories among a small group of friends and reading whatever books he could get his hands on.Geonn was inspired to create the fictional Squire’s Isle after a 2004 trip to San Juan Island in Washington State. His first novel set on the island, On the Air, was written almost as a side project to another story he wanted to tell. Reception to the story was so strong that the original story was put on the back burner to deal with the world created in On the Air. His second novel set in the same universe, Gemini, was also very well received and went on to win the Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Best Novel, Dramatic/General Fiction. Geonn was the first male author to receive the honor.While some of his novels haven’t focused as heavily on Squire’s Isle, the vast majority of Geonn’s works take place in the same universe and have connections back to the island and its cast of characters (the exception being the Riley Parra series). In addition to writing more novels based on the inhabitants of Squire’s Isle, Geonn hopes to one day move to the real-life equivalent to inspire further stories.In his spare time, Geonn reads as much as possible and writes occasional TV and book reviews for Geek Speak Magazine.

Cute story maybe just a little to bravado lot of it far out there
From the time when she was a little girl and a firefighter saved her that was the only career that Alexandra Crawford ever wanted. She enjoys the excitement of fighting the fires and the camaraderie that she shares with the other members of the department. Her busy schedule doesn't leave her much time for a social life, but that changes when a minor injury takes her to the emergency room and she's treated by Dr. Rachel Tom. The women feel an immediate attraction and try to set up dates, but are interrupted more than once by a surprising rash of fires that breaks out. It quickly becomes apparent that an arsonist is on the loose and that firefighters are his specific target. Through grief and fear the bond between Alex and Rachel grows stronger and becomes something to fight for as the killer turns them into his special target. This is a fairly routine story. While the characters are pleasant enough, there is still the feeling that they're not remarkable. The reader will not find any surprises or twists in this story and can probably anticipate most of the plot peaks before much has been read. The fires add a little excitement to the story, but they also follow a predictable route. The book can be read quickly in a few hours and will provide some entertainment, but nothing about World on Fire makes it stand out from other stories about firefighters and their world. If you're looking for a book that will entertain you for a couple of hours, World on Fire will do. This is one that can be interrupted by other chores and you'll have no trouble following the story when you go back to it.
